The association mourns for Nicola Klaiber
On 18 December 2018, the actress Nicola Klaiber died after a short, severe illness. Only a few months earlier, she planned to go to Peru with her play
"I'm not a lady, I'm an old cane", which was premiered in Dresden in 2014.
Unfortunately, the fulfillment of this dream will no longer be possible.
We will remember Nicola Klaiber as a dear friend and an active member of our association.
